Hluhluwe / Imfolozi Park

Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park, formerly Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Game Reserve, is the oldest proclaimed nature reserve in South Africa. It consists of 960 km² (96,000 ha) of hilly topography, 280 kilometres (170 mi) north of Durban in central KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and is known for its rich wildlife and conservation efforts. This Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife run park is one of very few parks in KwaZulu-Natal where each of the “Big Five” can be found.

umHluhluwe – the zulu name given to Dalbergia armata, the Thorny-Rope or Hluhluwe Creeper. The Hluhluwe river is named after this species due to its prevalence on the banks of the river and it was used by surrounding communities to make muzzles for the calves to prevent them from taking milk from the cows during weaning.

“Thank you so much for the private game drive we enjoyed on the morning of 1 December. It was a truly special time and will live in our memories forever.”

Alison and Odin

“I was not really expecting to see many animals, because the weather was not on our side. Even though, the game drive was one of the best I had in my life.”


“It was great meeting you again and seeing your commitment to delivering quality services after all these years. I wish we had many more stakeholders like you in this country.”


“Your guide made us feel so comfortable and part of the umHluhluwe family. We cannot wait to come for another drive, and without any hesitation would definitely recommend your company to friends and family.”
